Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Hi. I re-did the file to those specifications, and it resulted in the said flashing of the terminal with no output or action. (It flashes very fast so I can't really see if anything happened but the command "airodump-ng" should result in sustained output)
Did you still leave a
in your script? I think it's best to leave it out of the script and just use it like this:
Also note that you join commands with && if you want to stop the sequence if any of the commands fail. "echo 1 && echo 2" means echo 1 and if that statement succeeds, then run the command "echo 2" and on and on any number of commands. On the other hand "echo 1 || echo 2" means run "echo 1" and then only if that fails, run "echo 2"
And if you really don't care what the return status is or the return status is undefined (unlikely on Linux but very prevalent in Windows) then just use the semicolon (";").
